What kind of tasks are you wanting to do?

kinda hard to suggest what hardware would be worth getting.

Multi threaded applications and high cpu demanding programs.

If you will be using multi threaded apps, the i7 720 QM would be the choice. have a look at some benchmark comparisons:

Mobile Processors - Benchmarklist - Notebookcheck

The i7 will perform better in video/image editing, and multi thread apps. Its cache is 6 MB
and its turbo boost is higher than the i5. Between the 2, and the info you provided, go for the i7. A Guy

Yes, all the i series CPUs are good. Obviously some better than others, hence your question. But between your 2 choices and criteria, I'd say it is the best choice. A Guy
